Anyone can now stream their Steam games to other devices in the house

Valve's in-home streaming service is now out of beta and available to the public. The service allows you to stream your library of Steam games to other, less-powerful devices, such as a laptop.

The firm announced the news today, adding that currently, you're only able to stream from a PC running Windows, with support to SteamOS, Linux, and Mac OSX coming soon.

The in-home streaming page details three easy steps to start the service, all you need to do is log-in on your PC -the one that will act as the host-, log-in to the other laptop or device you're going to stream to, and finally launch the game. Both PCs have to be on the same network.

Interestingly, the support page adds that you can stream non-Steam games, though they're not officially supported. Non-Steam games are games that are not sold through the service, but some users choose to launch them through Steam to gain the overlay functionality of the service, so games purchased on GOG for instance can be streamed.

Are you looking forward to try this feature, or have you tried it during the beta? Let us know your thoughts.
